Of the Rings of Power and the Third Age, THe SilmarillionIn those days the smiths of Ost-in-Edhil surpassed all that they had contrived before; and they took thought, and they made Rings of Power. But Sauron guided their labours, and he was aware of all that they did; for his desire was to set a bond upon the Elves and to bring them under his vigilance."
Just curious but why not? Isn't a dark elf just one that never saw the Light of the Trees? So Maeglin would be one too? Or am I being stupid? I often get stupid when I've been on-line too long!Originally posted by Pontifex
Maeglin wasn't the Dark Elf, Eonwe, his father Eöl was. And although Maeglin was Eöl's son he didn't inherit the title of Dark Elf.

I knew someone was going to say that
I think Mandos says though the fates of Arda, Earth, Air, Water are bound to the Silmarils. He didn't say fire did he?
